|Purpose||Complete their Missions|
The Shikaku (刺客, Japanese for Assassins) is a three-man cell formed by Hide, Shinkō and Hito; all young and-up-coming assassins from the Arma Clan. The team currently resides in Kōhai Tochi, accepting work from any who pays for their services, though stemming from their own families bitter relationships with the Satonaka Clan they never take contracts from the latter, and would generally accept a hit on a Satonaka over others.
Each member is characterized by the emblem they have tattooed on their bodies, with actual location varying between members. For example, Hide's emblem is between his shoulder blades, while Shinkō's is located on her lower-left abdomen. The emblem is considered a free pass within the confines of Kōhai Tochi, such is the respect the young members have garnered since their formation.
Even though others are hired depending on the difficulty of the mission received, there are only three actual members of the Shikaku. Those are:
|Members of Shikaku|
|Hide Arma||Shinkō Arma||Hito Arma|
